General Principles

In practice, the post-Master's degree registered associate is expected to conduct evaluations and treatment to meet the mental health needs of a diverse population of patients who are members of a health maintenance organization, with guidance and supervision from a primary supervisor and secondary supervisors. Most fellows have contact with more than 100 outpatients over the training year and have experience co-leading or leading groups and psycho-educational classes. Fellows also provide psycho-education and mental health consultation to parents, school staff and other community organizations that provide services to children, adolescents and parents.
